We’ve combed the Internet to put together a list of 50 dog names that would be perfect for a wolf dog, a dog that looks like a wolf, and more. Let’s get started!

Wolf Names in Mythology

Here are some wolf names taken from the mythology of several cultures around the world. These would make beautiful, unique names for any fur baby!

1). Amarok: this is the name of a giant wolf in Inuit mythology. He was said to lurk in wait for humans that went out to hunt alone in the night. Doesn’t that just make you shiver? Still, this would be a pretty name for a boy or girl wolf dog, or any dog that acts or looks like a wolf!

2). Asena: is a female wolf that from the Oghuz Turkic myth. This wolf found a young boy who happened to survive a battle. Asena finds the boy and nurses him back to health. She has many adventures, and eventually is the mother of 10 ten half-wolf and half-human boys.

3). Fenris: is the name of a wolf gold of the Norse, who is a giant wolf. Fenrir is the father of the wolves Skoll and Hati and is a son of Loki. It is foretold in the myths that Fenrir would eventually kill the god Odin during Ragnorok, but then he will be killed by Odin’s son. This name seems to carry a lot of violence with it but could still be a great name for a very valiant husky.
